To my colleagues in the media: Elections are a serious business. If u are a moderator, prepare. Don't be another @MLauer and look the fool.

First thing we do, let’s kill all the “infotainment” moderators… for the encouragement of the ones who actually want to do their godsdamned job.
30 minutes isn’t a lot of time to cover US policy to all the regions of the world, so Lauer has wisely chosen to ask about none of them.

How in the hell does Lauer not factcheck Trump lying about Iraq? This is embarrassingly bad.

If you saw #CICForum and you think Trump is a plausible commander-in-chief, I doubt either your patriotism or your judgment or both.

The most important job of a journalist is to be a good listener. @MLauer fails the test at the first instance.

I'm not sure either candidate can feel like they made progress tonight. Clinton was on the defensive and Trump lacked a lot of substance
